Clerk’s Office Embroiled In Hubbub

Item: When one vote counts as two: Cd'A school officials, county dispute election percentages/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: That's the word from Coeur d'Alene School District officials regarding the results of Tuesday's levy election in which voters were asked to consider two levies equaling $12.9 million on one ballot. Both measures saw successful passage, each capturing more than half of the votes counted. But school officials stated Wednesday that county election workers handling the election process did not tabulate the no votes on the second ballot option according to the district's intentions.

Question: How should the county clerk's office have counted the votes for Option 2?
